Remember that epic “hallway” fight scene from Daredevil Season 1 — where the Man Without Fear singlehandedly took down a bunch of thugs to rescue a little boy?
Well, they’re doing it again in Season 2. Sort of.
Charlie Cox, who portrays the lawyer-by-day, Daredevil-by-night character, says a particular fight between his character and The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) will “pay homage” to the Season 1, Episode 2 scene.
Here are his comments in full according to TV Line:
What was nice about doing that scene is it was almost exactly a year off from the [original ‘one-shot’] sequence, and I remember thinking, ‘Wow, this is a tall order. Obviously we’re going to try to ‘pay homage’ to the scene from Episode 2, Season 1 — is that something we should even attempt? But I had complete trust in Phil Silvera, the stunt coordinator, and [stunt double] Chris Brewster, who are really the best in the trade at what they do.
It was very, very hot in New York, and it begins with me carrying Jon Bernthal over my shoulder for about a minute and a half — and that guy is heavy, pure muscle!
So before I even threw a punch or a kick, I was sweating through my suit. It was a huge challenge for everyone, including the camera operator, because most of it takes place in a stairwell, but it’s one of my great memories of Season 2, and the thing I’m most excited for the fans to see.
Daredevil Season 2 debuts on Netflix tomorrow, March 18th.
